Twinkle Twinkle.

Good morning to all, hope you are all well.
 
My daughter rang me yesterday to say she was starting her Christmas shopping so as not to leave it to the last minute.
Then as I was driving home in the car listening to the radio I heard the words ' Christmas lights will be turned on next week '
OMG It just makes you realise how close we are getting.
I'm always at the last minute and last year not only did no-one get a hand made card they didn't get any card, on Christmas day the pile of cards I had written were still sat on my kitchen worktop!!!
Beat that girls.
Now what did I do with them I wonder?
Well I do have hand made ones this year thanks to having my blog, but will I write on them when I get them out..... mmm
Me thinks I'll buy some just in case hee hee.
 
Well another Friday sees a new challenge over at Totally Papercrafts and this week it's the turn of the lovely Lanie and her theme is
'Twinkle Twinle Christmas Star'
So yep we want to see those Christmas stars
They can be die cut, embellishment, embossed etc, you get the picture.
Our fab sponsor this week is
 

 
 
And here is mine
 



 
 
Recipe
